Head of employment
Paul's experience in our employment team is pivotal in its recognition as an elite ranked team for employment law advice. He advises clients on contracts of employment, employment policies, individual and collective dismissals, discrimination claims, restrictive covenants and the practical aspects of sensitive internal investigations (both grievance and disciplinary).
Paul is advising his financial services clients on the implementation of the Senior Managers/Certification Regime (SMCR) including drafting policies, updating contracts and SMCR documentation, together with bespoke training to the compliance and HR community at his clients. Paul has a wealth of experience advising clients on how to apply the SMCR to everyday employment matters, for example disciplinary procedures, internal investigations, regulatory references and the notifications to the PRA/FCA on such issues.
He also has considerable experience in dealing with multi-jurisdictional employment law issues on corporate transactions (TUPE and share sale) and outsourcing.
Paul's strengths are with clients in the financial services sector, FTSE 100 and international luxury brands.
He's excellent; he responds promptly and enables us to make the most effective decisions possible for our business. He has an extremely strong strategic mind.
